What, what it's 27th November. How did that happen? Here are the November Care Packages for the Oh Comely! November box swap.
I got loads of lovely treats including: a delicious looking recipe, an interesting article about Stephen Shore who I knew nothing about and whose work sounds right up my street; an american Martin Parr, a felt Christmas decoration (eek!), hot chocolate on a spoon (yummy), some cool photos taken by Emma and a sketch book and pencil! THANK YOU EMMA - I love my box. I hope Emma liked her box. This is what it looked like before I sent it!
It's such a great idea and reminded me how much I love getting and sending stuff in the post.
The green flowery sticker was bought from the lovely Pavinee's Etsy shop here. The pompom was made using the pompom maker from Madrid - see earlier post. And a cool black and white photo I found in the street of some people up the coast at one of my favourite spots, Tossa de Mar in the 1960s.
I'm also taking part in this box swap. I just got my swapee and she's vegan so I need to think outside the box as far as knitted things go, stuff with wool at least, are out of the question. Oh comely is a magazine and blog full of lots of lovely treats... click here to see more!
Wow a month has passed since I last posted. Here are a few things I've been doing...(I also went back to work too!) I have found a great new site for recipes: the minimalist baker, this is my version of the healthy granola bar which lasted for about 5 minutes in our house! Yum
I have also been painting too.
